Why Sydney Residents Need Help With Gambling Addiction

Sydney is NSW’s capital and the most populous city in the state and Australia as a whole, with a population of roughly 5.3 million people. When people think of Australia, images of the world-renowned Sydney Opera House undoubtedly come to mind. Sydney is a global city, and more than 40% of the city’s populace was born overseas.

But, it also has a major gambling problem. According to the 2019 NSW Gambling Survey, more than half of all NSW adults gamble, with 6.34% of gamblers reporting some level of gambling harm. While buying lottery tickets is the most common form of gambling in NSW, electronic poker machines have become prominent in recent years, with some reports suggesting that gamblers are losing 7 billion dollars annually. NSW is recognised as Australia’s gambling capital, with its per capita expenditure of 1508 dollars being the highest in the country.

Gambling Addiction Treatment in Sydney

Given the significant number of individuals in Sydney who are undoubtedly grappling with the challenges of gambling addiction, it’s deeply concerning that the Greater Sydney area is facing a scarcity of accessible treatment options.

This gap in resources means that many residents are left without the necessary support to navigate their way through the complexities of problem gambling. It’s imperative that we acknowledge and address this issue, ensuring that those affected have access to a comprehensive range of support services to assist them in their journey towards recovery.

However, there are some local resources Sydney residents can benefit from, detailed below:



The government of NSW recognises that many of its citizens are problem gamblers and need help addressing their addiction. GambleAware is a free and confidential service that provides support and counselling to gamblers and their families. The program can be reached at 1800 858 858.

Mental Health

The Cabin Sydney

Found on Ocean Street in Edgecliff, this facility provides treatment for a variety of addictions, including drugs, alcohol, and gambling.

While there are some resources for assistance in the area, it’s important to recognise that private, effective help often comes with a high price tag, rendering it unattainable for many due to the steep costs associated with such services in Australia. This financial barrier can prevent individuals from accessing the support they desperately need, highlighting a significant gap in the availability of affordable treatment options for those struggling with gambling addiction.

How We Treat Gambling Addiction in Bali

We are fully aware that struggling with a gambling addiction can be a difficult experience. Please know that we are here to help. Allow us to provide you with an overview of how we approach the intricacies of compulsive gambling and assist you in overcoming this burden.

Group Therapy

An important part of our treatment is group therapy. In group therapy, guests can share insights about their struggles and experiences dealing with addiction. Our guests can also make connections with each other, and these connections can form a support system that will be invaluable to a person’s recovery.

Cocaine Addiction

Substance Abuse Treatment

It’s often the case that gamblers also have a substance abuse disorder. Sometimes, it’s because their gambling addiction has made them anxious and depressed, and they turn to drugs or alcohol to cope. We integrate treatments and therapies for substance abuse disorders into a patient’s personalised treatment plan to address all their addictions, laying the groundwork for lasting recovery.

Individual Counselling

Individual counselling is one of the most important parts of our treatment. This is where our patients and counsellors will work closely together to get to the root of addiction as well as develop healthy coping mechanisms so recovering addicts can manage their urge to gamble without relapsing.

A central tool in addressing gambling addiction is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This type of therapy is concerned with identifying, addressing, and changing the thought patterns that lead to negative emotions and self-destructive behaviours such as gambling.
